The “m” in mLearning means More

mLearning Revolution

When you go to a conference on Mobile Learning or attend a webinar, you pretty much know the drill; the Presenter spends most of his or her time going through a long list of challenges we face as an eLearning industry considering the move to mobile learning (mLearning). It’s a bit depressing in my opinion. And when we do this, invariably innovation follows. Send to Kindle.

Adobe Captivate 5/5.5: Wacky Shapes Rule

I Came, I Saw, I Learned

by Kevin Siegel    Captivate ships with a set number of Caption types. If you're a graphic designer (or know someone who is), you can always create more Caption types. However, the  process of creating a custom Caption type  can be a bit tedious. To begin, use the  Object Toolbar  to insert a Polygon, Circle or Rectangle on a slide. (To

Flipping Corporate Learning

Jay Cross

Flipping learning is big in education. It will be big in corporate learning. Let’s not blow it. How do you flip learning? Khan Academy is the poster child for flipped learning. Sal Khan has produced more than 3,000 short videos on a variety of topics. Students watch the videos before coming to class. Millions of students are learning this way. Flipping makes a ton a sense.

14% of Employees Value Corporate Training as Essential to their Learning

Corporate eLearning Strategies and Development

14% is not good. Shocking? Almost 70% went even further and marked company training as somewhat or not important. What's up with that? As someone who has suffered through horrific corporate training experiences this does not surprise me. As someone who has spent more than 15 years working to make corporate training better, this annoys me. In my opinion this is not a training problem.

What the ‘Draw Something’ App Can Teach Training Designers

Mindflash

A friend of mine introduced me to “ Draw Something ” last month and I must admit — I’m addicted. You earn coins for correct guesses and successful rounds are celebrated. Now, I already fancied myself to be a visual person, but playing Draw Something has really reinforced to me that visual thinking is only one layer of design. Here are three specific lessons I’ve learned: 1.

Opening Pandora's box

Learning with e's

Once upon a time, teachers used to close the door behind them, and then begin their lessons. To all intents and purposes, what went on inside the classroom stayed inside the classroom. Then along came technology. New technologies have the potential to undermine the 'sanctity of the classroom' as they open up what is said and done for the world to see. Others are ambivalent. Did he really say that?

Trainers: Is Gladwell’s 10,000 Hour Rule a Hoax?

Bottom-Line Performance

Well, no…but some trainers seem to think so. In the age of “awareness level training” and “click next to continue” courses designed to check a box or meet regulatory requirements, we risk missing out on opportunities to really let learning happen. Awareness may be necessary, but it’s just the beginning. If your training program begins and ends with “awareness,” you’re missing the boat.

Isn’t It Always About Control?

The Learning Dispatch

Have you ever used an educational website and been blown away by how interesting and engaging it is? I encounter these types of sites when I’m pursuing informal learning. Part of the attractiveness in the learning is that it’s what interests me. Another factor is the site gives me control. These informal learning sites/tools shed insight on how powerful learning can be when we give learners control over what they investigate.

Malcolm Gladwell did an excellent job of showing us that it takes 10,000 hours to be a master at virtually any discipline. We seem to forget that awareness is just the beginning of the learning process.
